Joining us this week on IAQ Radio is Claudia Lezell President of Inspections Too Inc., an inspection company that specializes in aiding in the diagnosis of floor covering and moisture related failures. Ms Lezell is the crème of the crop when it comes to floor covering inspection.

One of the most common issues she and her team of experts deal with is moisture. Claudia leads a team of highly qualified scientists, experienced engineers and trained certified inspectors whose mission is to provide the highest quality diagnostic services in the industry.

The need for this type of service is ever increasing due to the vast majority of factors that play into each flooring and moisture related failure. Flooring and moisture related failures can be avoided if proper testing procedures are followed before installation of a project; however this is not usually the case.

Billions of dollars in related damages occur each year from flooring failures related to factors that could have been avoided if proper pre-installation testing had been performed.

Every floor has its own unique situation… sub-floor preparation, installation, specification and maintenance. Determining the failure of a specific floor requires a thorough analysis and understanding of that floor.

Flooring changes are occurring faster than ever driving the need for expert inspection when the inevitable failures occur. Knowledge of substrates, industry trends and new products, studies about each floor type is vital when assessing the possible causes of the floor failure in today's ever changing market.
